Don’t be afraid to bring colour to your outdoor living with these top tips:
On Thursday the 22nd of April 2020 we were lucky enough to tune in to a fantastic Facebook live hosted by Colourtrend Paints and featuring Interior Design Superstar, Rachel Hobbs. Throughout the Live Chat both Daragh and Rachel gave us some brilliant insight into bringing colour to your outdoor living. We jotted down some notes below:
-When considering external paint go one shade darker as the light outside is much brighter
-Don’t be afraid of Dark colours as they create an anchor and help everything feel more grounded
-Exterior paint can be daunting as there’s a lot more paint involved. Best thing is to start small, choose one colour that you love and then build from there.
-When choosing house colours start with two shades you enjoy and build each with a toning shade. Rach suggests similar light shade for windows and trim, dark rich shade for plinth and fun tonal shade for front door
- What is the perfect shade for Outdoor Sheds?
- Lots of variables involved i.e what way the light comes in, how bigs the yard, do you want a stand out shed or something to blend in etc.
-Rachel prefers hints of green or earthy tones as they tend to be warmer than cold greys or blacks like Dressage. Tones with greens and browns tend to bring more joy
-Note: Green is a relaxing, soft colour and speaks to the natural environment of Ireland. Any shade of green will sit comfortably in a garden.
